Dec. 1943; Oslofjorden:
Some friends were eating when they saw a light which
appeared to be on the harbour. Fearing sabotage, they entered their cars (3)
and drove towards the phenomenon. Some distance away the cars stopped and
couldn't be started again. They left the cars and ran towards the light,
which seemed to resemble a church bell, and were (sic-was)
a hazy orange color. When they approached it, they heard a whistling sound, like air being released
from an air compressor. A moment later the object ascended 9-18 feet above the water
and took off with an enormous speed, without any sign of acceleration. At
last the object had a deep blue color as it disappeared over Oslofjorden. As
soon as it disappeared, the witnesses (4) investigated the area and discovered a craterlike
depression in the snow about 4.5 feet in diameter and about 3 feet deep.
Outside this the snow had melted1 to a diameter of 54 feet.

Note 1 – All the UFOCAT URNs below mention
a hissing noise except URN 146173. I consider this hissing interesting as it
confirms the HOT field in contact with the snow.-CF-
